About 23 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken jerky were recalled Thursday by Pigeon Forge, TN-based Jerky Boyz because of a processing deviation that may have led to under-processing of products, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The problem was discovered Oct. 10 by FSIS inspection personnel during a records review verification.
The ready-to-eat chicken jerky was produced from Sep. 6 through Sep. 26. The following products are subject to recall:
- 2.5-oz. clear plastic packages containing “Jerky BoyZ Chicken Jerky Buffalo Wing” with lot code 81101.
- 2.5-oz. clear plastic packages containing “Jerky BoyZ Chicken Jerky Kickin’ Pepper” with lot code 81101.
The recalled products bear establishment number “P-46388” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Tennessee.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website.
